Default Is it time for me to get a new car or what????????

Gosh dang my ford contour 2.0 auto is getting so amazinly junky and I've only had it for 7 months.......... the alternator is junk had to replace the o2 sensor the MAF is disconnected otherwise the car will jolt back and forth tranny still slips from 3rd to overdrive the same ammount as it did 7 months ago....... the muffler is off and I put a whistler thingy in my exaust for a joke and ended up blowing a hole in my flex pipe lmfao the car clunks over bumps..... the back end sits so amazinly low..... the trunk key hole is drilled through so i could get into my car to get my last set of keys (the cops could not get the doors open) I have 3 different sizes of tires 2 15 inch mercury mystique tires 1 14 inch wagon tire (HUGE TIRE) and 1 original 14 inch tire..... the hood wont fully close cause i had to snap the cable for the hood the front grill is gone cause i had to get under my hood....... the oil still leaks........ the anti-freeze is brown....... the antifreeze bubbles and acts like it overheats....... the fan runs most of the time even at highway driving... temp gauge dont work....the interior is a complete mess.. there is no spare no jack and no tire iron the thing acellerates like poop and it runs like poop......... it has a suttle backfire real mellow to it.......... I have no wiper blades so when acidently turned on you hear a poop metal on glass grinding noise the front speakers crackle most of the time...... I have a quater and a nickel in place of the 2 20 amp fuses that keep blowing..... in order to drive I must charge the battery fully and take it back home when it gets low so that pretty much cuts out night cruising.... had to replace the head lights a few times one brake light and running light is dimmer than the other...... but for some darn reason i still like pimpin in it had it for 12500 miles and 7 months for a total of 154500 miles and still beats a 96 taurus 3.0 auto with 200k miles (highway miles)

With winter coming on that may not be a bad idea to purchase a new car. Bet your heater does not work!

Keep it, and learn to reap the benifits of your actions.

spray paint it yellow, get a big wood wing, consisted of 2x4'*, and get some red tint for the windows. Then get those clip on walmart spinners. Cut off the muffler, and put on a coffee can instead [yes, a coffee can, not a real muffler], and make sure your heat works. You will be GOLDEN! loL! If your heater works.. keep it for the winter, otherwise, drop it off at the junkyard and put a sign on it "needs good home"

Buy new wiper blades? Maybe a new battery? From what I remember you have not treated this car too well. If I'm wrong then let me know. You gotta respect what you have, especially when you are driving a halfway decent car (as opposed to an old beat up econobox or a gas guzzling land cruiser).
